This is the Olympus 593 flying test bed, which flew for the first time with the Olympus fitted 2 days earlier, so the engine was not running! The chase HS125 is probably G-ATPB of Bristol Siddeley (The de Havilland 125 was in fact registered G-ARYC. I saw her make a wheels-up landing at Filton on 11/12/64)
